Added author information for the short story and a link to its Wikipedia page. Also added some periods at the end of sentences and italicized some film titles.
* "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh
:''(plays at Kugel's Kec Keg bar, with Dean playing dart darts and Sam doing research)''
* "Sweet and Low Down" by George Gershwin <sup>according to [[S1Com]]</sup>
:''(plays while Pa Bender is in the kitchen)''
In the scene where Dean enters the Benders' barn to find Sam and Kathleen, the original script had Dean humming the "[ Dueling Banjos]" theme from ''[ Deliverance]'', a horror film that shares some story elements with this episode (most notably the antagonists being murderous backwoods psychos). However, possibly because they couldn't get the rights to the music, in the episode itself the humming is cut out, though you can still see Dean's mouth moving.}}
